1993→1998 Mercedes Benz SL 60 AMG

I purchased this SL60 AMG from a well known vodafone executive who bought it new and then imported it from London to Sydney.

The car had travelled 8000 miles only. I owned the car between the years 2005 -2007. It is somewhere in Melbourne, Australia these days(apparently sitting on blocks and stored).

AMG GERMANY recognised the chassis number and when i contacted them regarding service procedures which the Australian Benz dealer were not familiar with.

When the local mercedes mechanics saw the car the whole workshop was in amazement as they had never seen an SL60. ( Only 3 in Australia).

AMG sent me the spec list,the car was ordered with stage 3 amg cams and special seats and the panoramic glass hardtop.

It was midnight blue exterior with navy blue leather interior. One of only 30 known right hand drive SL60 ever manufactured. Extremely rare.
